koukouvagia - have you ever been to Italy?  A wonderfully musical place and they are so family orientated.  I loved my stay there.  It's a real fun place to visit.

Oh yes, a few times.  I've been to Naples, Sicily and traveled through Umbria.  Even the food at the airport was good.

Re: A season for Italy

BBC Two's Italy Unpacked with Art critic Andrew Graham-Dixon and Chef Giorgio Locatelli, was another fantastic Italy experience. Both these guys know their stuff. Seeing the rice traders and the rice farmers was interesting, as was all the show.
The cars were amazing , We once had 13 people in a Fiat 126, very irresponsible, I know. We were young and foolish. We drove around the block.
If you can get BBC it may still be on the I player. Its worth a watch.

I'm hosting a bunch of ladies, mainly in my age, housewives as well as working ones, with the aim of clearing our cooking doubts, improove our knowledge about food choice while buying it, and also making a check up of our bad habits in doing the best in the shortest time ......

all this (while chatting and taking notes) with the help of cuoco Roberto, who will make a pause with his beekeeping activity and be for a few hours our expert in Italian/Friulian classic cucina

if you have any questions, post them before wednesday afternoon and I'll ask him smile

Re: A season for Italy

fresh pistacchi are very expensive here and amost unknown, what we find are dry salted ones, I'm dreaming of pistacchi powder spread on baklava layers as you see in videos, I'll ask a friend, icecream maker, lately doing also crepes in his gelateria, to be eaten there or as takeaway

thank you goose for commenting

I could also ask my neighbor pasticcere

"A season for Italy"? Wow I had never thought of that, what a brilliant idea. Original and unheard of coming from Jamie.

Boring! yawn  Same ol, same ol'...
